The 2017 Root Ball will celebrate Trees Atlanta’s growth on the Westside including the current installation of the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum on the Westside Beltline Trail, expanded education programs focused on Westside schools, and restoration work in greenspaces located in the Westview and West End neighborhoods.

We invite you to be a part of this special celebration. The event will feature dinner, cocktails, music and a huge silent auction. Community tree champions will also be recognized for the work they do to support tree canopy in our city. All proceeds will benefit Trees Atlanta’s innovative and trusted education, planting, and conservation programs.
